Editor's Note: We were blown away by the internet explosion that was the Ultimate Slash Madness Tourney, and it occurred to us that a regular weekly column on the subject of slash might be a great fit for AfterElton. The name for such a column was easy: The Shipping News. The only catch was who to write it? We realized the only way a column would appeal to slash fans was if the person writing it really knew what they were talking about. So we put out an informal request for a "slash expert" and we were inundated with great responses and suggestions. We then asked interested folks to submit a sample column, hoping to narrow it down to a single candidate. Fat chance. Even after reluctantly eliminating a dozen impressive submissions, we we're still left with five great people we wanted to work with.

The happy solution we came »
